Sushmita Pathak is a New York-based multimedia journalist who splits her time between radio production and freelance reporting. Currently working at WNYC Radio as an intern at The Brian Lehrer Show, Sushmita cut her teeth in public radio as an intern at Science Friday, a weekly radio show. She has produced segments on many different sciences—from the wonky politics of geoengineering to the cool physics of robo-bees. Her freelance reporting has appeared in NPR, VICE, BRIGHT Magazine and OZY. 

Sushmita is a 2017 graduate of Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism where she concentrated on audio journalism and covering mental health care. Prior to grad school, she worked as a writer and editor at a Dubai-based digital indie publication.

An electronics and communications engineering major, she sometimes misses poring over circuit diagrams in the middle of the night.
